Your right Kraxle, they do have to much time. Maybe they could start giving a little of that extra time to the construction of a few new coasters. :) ----------------- "This time I think ... I think it's ... it's going to work!" - Dr.Bruce Banner
Right on Coastercraver. What they are doing is helping thier business, not hurting it by telling everyone "We have too much time, look, we just put up another stupid webcam!"
By showing off the property like that, it encourages people to visit the park even more. I must say, it works well, I can't wait until next summer when I get to goto CP, and the webcams sure don't help the time go faster, but instead help it go slower by making me want to go even more.

i think theyre stupid...its gonna be the same picture 24/7, except for how bright the sun is...The cameras should be closer to the floor, like at an entrance of a ride or something..at least be able to see people ----------------- "Ahh Beer.

yeah, maybe it will stop all those "how long is MF's line on this day, or that day, maybe this day even?" threads. ----------------- t h e r e s a monkey in my pocket and he stealing all my change, his stare is blank and glassy i suspect that hes diranged.....

Companies do not make millions of dollars by having too much time on their hands. I agree with TrBiggar about the webcams encouraging people to visit and not only that, but it keeps people coming back to their web site.
I wish more parks would do this, I would love to see one at Kennywood and Idlewild. Maybe Kennywood can trade their Phantom Phanatic scanner in for a web cam. :)
If you live close enough, you can use these three webcams to decide if its busy or not to make that four hour visit. Or if they were like the ones at IOA you can zoom around and all that and see how full the queues are ----------------- Assistant Webmaster Kennywood Park Unlimited http://www.kpunlimited.com
woah, you know what would be amazing??? It'd be near impossible though.. If they had that live video camera by raptor BUILT INTO the front of a MF train, and broadcast it to a receiver in the station somewhere......you could see the train pulling into the station, the people waiting to board, AND the ride as it's going through the course. Now that would be a feat to get that to work!! -----------------
